Stella studied music from a young age, starting piano accordion lessons at five, followed later by singing and piano, both through the Royal Irish Academy of Music. A degree in Computer Science from University College Dublin followed, and in 2017 she completed a Master’s Degree in Music in Dublin’s Conservatory of Music.

Read "BigSpoon's Chris Engel: Intention...  And Spontaneity" reviewed by Ian Patterson
